Sending money to Mozambique made easy with Mama Money

Elevate your money transfer experience to new heights with Mama Money. Whether for essentials, school fees, healthcare, or simply supporting your loved ones back home in Mozambique, your family and friends can now receive funds directly, swiftly, and securely.

Known for its picturesque landscapes, Mozambique is home to millions of expats residing in South Africa. The link between these two nations has fostered a remittance culture, becoming a critical income source for many Mozambican households. According to data from the World Bank, remittances to Mozambique stood at USD 329 million in 2020, emphasising their significant role in the country's economy.


Challenges of sending money to Mozambique 

Despite this extensive remittance activity, sending money to Mozambique often involves hurdles such as high transaction fees, lengthy processing times, complex procedures, limited payout options, and safety concerns. 

Mama Money is dedicated to resolving these issues by providing a safe, swift, easy-to-use service with a competitive fee structure.

  1. High Fees: Traditional banking systems and remittance services often impose high charges, including a fixed transfer fee plus an additional percentage of the total amount sent. This makes the more you send, the more you end up paying.
  2. Lengthy Processing Times: Traditional money transfer methods could take days to reach the receiver due to the various checks and balances that financial institutions employ, which can be inconvenient in emergencies when funds are required immediately.
  3. Complex Procedures: Traditional banks and money transfer services frequently demand extensive paperwork and identification from both the sender and receiver, rendering the process lengthy and tiring.
  4. Limited Payout Options: Access to traditional banking institutions may be limited in remote parts of Mozambique, forcing recipients to travel considerable distances to collect money.
  5. Security Concerns: International money transfers can pose security issues around interception of sensitive information, potential scams, or the safety risk associated with carrying large amounts of cash.

Mama Money seeks to address these challenges by offering a safe, speedy, user-friendly service with a transparent fee structure. With our unique payout option, even the most remote recipients in Mozambique can receive their money directly.

At Mama Money, we aim to make the process as effortless as possible, enabling you to focus on what truly matters: taking care of your loved ones.
